Decriminalizing sex work means that sex workers and clients can’t be legally prosecuted for engaging in Sex work.
(Yes this still leaves issues like loitering charges)

Legalizing means creating a set of laws that sex workers are required to follow to stay legal. This is trash
Because anyone who cannot afford to commit to legal requirements will still be criminalized. Which means they can’t report abusive clients. They can’t trust police. They are at constant risk of arrest.

Legalizing means only people who can afford to be legal will be legal
Like I’m just so tired. How do y’all not get this yet?

If we make a set of rules about who/where/when/why sex work Can happen, multiple sex workers will be left behind and at risk of abuse and arrest for not doing it under legal restrictions.

We need decrim.
Decrim removes penalizing and punishments. So sex workers who can’t work under legal restrictions are still safe(r) from the risk of arrest, police brutality, bad clients etc.
